I always liked Dallas

Seriously. My mother was an old friend of Roger Staubach’s when he was at the Naval Academy, and then of course there was the indelible impression that The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders left on a young, impressionable boy, so I cheered for the Cowboys until that infamous unflagged pass interference no-call against Drew Pearson that killed Fran Tarkenton’s father and made me realize that there really wasn’t room for two teams in a Purple heart.

Anyhow, I’m delighted to announce that my syndicate, UPS, informed me today that my column will be appearing regularly in the Dallas Morning News, starting in November. This is pretty cool, I think, as it has the seventh-largest Sunday circulation and the ninth-largest daily circulation in the country.
